Blackfin orbits outer space with astronaut Paolo Nespoli

5 January 2022

At the opening of its new headquarters, honoring the company’s 50th anniversary, Blackfin revealed a special collaborative project with Paolo Nespoli. In 2017, for the famous ESA astronaut’s last mission to the International Space Station in 2017, Blackfin crafted several custom frames used in orbit to conduct vision-related scientific tests.

But the relationship between Blackfin and Nespoli is a real friendship, based on some important shared values ‒ like the determination to achieve one’s objectives despite difficulties; a sensitivity to and respect for the environment and the planet in general; and, Italian excellence, represented by the astronaut, and to which the company consistently aspires.
